For those that missed today's gameplay showcase for WB Games and Turtle Rock Studios' Back 4 Blood, never fear – the event can now be watched on demand.

To get players acquainted, the development team showcased an extended gameplay demo of this upcoming first-person cooperative zombie shooter. The team also spoke about the vision behind the game, along with what players can expect from the Closed PC Alpha Test that is open from now through December 21.

You can watch the video on demand (via Twitch) here.

Taking place after a catastrophic outbreak, the story of Back 4 Blood throws players into a world where most of humanity has been murdered or infected by the parasitic Devil Worm. Despite this doom and gloom, a group of apocalypse vets that call themselves the Cleaners are taking on the infected horrors (dubbed the Ridden) and reclaiming the world.

Included in this title is a four-player cooperative story campaign that puts the Cleaners up against the Ridden, working together as a team to survive increasingly challenging missions. Drop-in and drop-out co-op will be included, and players can also fly solo with three AI teammates in the campaign portion of the title. Back 4 Blood will also feature PvP competitive multiplayer that supports up to eight players, which will have teams taking turns playing as both the Cleaners and the Ridden.

The final release will come out on June 22, 2021 for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S/X, and PC.

Conan Chop Chop Releasing Early 2021


Originally set to release in September 2019, the world of Mighty Kingdom and Funcom's Conan Chop Chop will release in early 2021.

This hack-and-slash, which originally started as an April Fools' joke, increased in scope since its original announcement. With both support for couch and online co-op, more random events, new traps, and vicious minibosses have been added with this additional development time.

The development team is proud to announce that the number of possible item combinations has been increased from 14 trillion to an amount too high for the human brain to fathom. Between this and its procedurally generated world, the title was designed with replayability in mind.

According to Funcom's Chief Creative Officer Joel Bylos:

"If we had launched this year, there'd be half the number of cute pigs in the game. And you can't launch a Conan game without that. And besides, the only crunch we want in our Conan game is the crunch of bones beneath our sandalled feet."

For those that'd like to see the world of Conan the Cimmerian Barbarian in action, you can view the trailer that started it all below:

Where To Find The Blow Torch In GTA Online Cayo Perico Heist

Where To Find The Blow Torch In GTA Online Cayo Perico Heist
The Cutting Torch is required for one special approach in the heist. This guide on Where To Find The Blow Torch In GTA Online Cayo Perico Heist will tell you how you can unlock the Cutting Torch so that you're able to use one of the heists more creative and easier infiltration point.

The recon process for the Cayo Perico Heist allows players to hunt down specific objectives, locations, and items, that open further options for the heist during the preparation and execution phases. If you have found all the Points of Interests, Exit Points, and Secondary Targets, you'll have a much higher chance for success. One such location, an Infiltration Point under the water near the Compound, allows you to approach with the submarine directly and get into the compound within seconds of starting the actual heist.

However, if you do not come prepared, you'll find yourself a little stuck. Although you can unlock the Infiltration point under the compound, you cannot gain access without a Cutting Torch, because the entrance is underwater and guarded by a metal grate. You need the blow torch to destroy the metal gate so you can access the compound from underneath the water.

The blow torch is not like the other objectives, like Grappling Hooks, Guard Clothing, or Bolt Cutters, they are not found just by exploring the island in the recon step.

It's actually in the next step. After you complete all the recon, you will progress to the preparation stage of the heist. This is where you will find a mission that will give you the Cutting Torch. Complete this mission and you will be able to cut the grate to access the compound during the heist.

Rhythm Race Review

Players will be able to feel the rhythm of the night with BlueFront's new title Rhythm Race. A racing game where you don't take the wheel, does its music-based antics help it cross the finish line?

Rhythm Race Review

Though this title might look like a traditional racer (albeit one with a stylish dayglo 80s neon aesthetic), the controls of Rhythm Race are a bit different than the norm. Rather than control the steering and the acceleration of their ride, players will instead control their aura. Mapped to the QWERT keys, players will be able to choose between purple, blue, green, white, and yellow colors as they race along.

The key to victory is to make sure your aura matches the same color as the upcoming bars of light on the track. Match them up and you'll be able to increase your multiplayer and go faster. Get it wrong, however, and players will lose out on however much multiplier they have saved up and slow down. There's also circles on the ground that need both the aura and the space bar to match for it to register.

Sounds simple right? It is…to an extent.

By limiting the amount of interaction players have to a color and five keys sounds simple enough, but figuring out what color corresponds to what button is a recipe for disaster. Even on the normal difficulty setting we were fumbling along every step of the way. It's not like the two color scheme of Ikaruga or even the three color scheme of Pawarumi; there's simply far too much to keep track of at any given time. It also doesn't help that the aura of your car is positively tiny; even at full screen we were often unable to make it out amidst the other cars.

To add insult to injury, projecting the wrong aura causes a nasty dissonant sound to come about. When a game is unpleasant to play, you just know that you've got something that is less than stellar. The space bar sections aren't much better, with it feeling clumsy and counterintuitive. Put simply, it shouldn't have been included to begin with.

The short song list, which consists of such oddball names as "Husky Frog," "Rhythmic Clapping," and "Calm Owl" are about as interesting as you would expect with names like that. The synth beats are decent enough, but it doesn't leave a lasting impression and falls far shorter than established artists like Com Truise.

Other than that, there's not much to this package. Achievements are MIA, and outside of gunning for the maximum amount of notes hit and notes streaks, there's little incentive to truly master this package.

Rhythm Race makes an attempt to combine the racing and rhythm genres, but the end result is a disjointed mess. The control scheme is far too awkward and overdeveloped for its own good, and the whole package feels broken at a fundamental level.

We're unsure of how many different locations there are but we'll keep looking and keep updating with more information as we find more locations.
